NFL games on DVD

Ok so I've wondered about this for a while now, so I'm hoping someone here will know the answer to this. How come the NFL does not have individual games and/or the Super Bowl games for sale? Where you can watch the WHOLE game and not just highlights...and without the commercials? I would think this would be a great product to sell. The Super Bowl games alone would sell like crazy to the fans of the winning teams...but then regular season games such as Gibbs last game at home vs. Dallas, Favre's Monday night game after his father died, etc etc. Why don't they sell these?

Probably not worth the production costs. Yeah it would be great to have some of those games but I'm not sure enough people would be lining up for them. The NFLN shows a lot of those classic games now, just record them.

Re: NFL games on DVD

I think making entire seasons available on DVD's would sell. I'm trying to think why you wouldn't at least sell them online or something like that. The Danny needs to drop six flags and get on it.

Sell them for 70-100$ each. Shoot, I'd buy an entire season, with player interviews, commentary, fan input, etc...

I can imagine why the Miami Dolphins 2007 season DVD wouldnt sell, but the Redskins? Especially this particular season; playoffs, Joe Gibbs, Sean Taylor, etc.. It would fly off the shelves. You can't say that it wouldn't be worth the production costs. I really can't see why this hasn't been thought of yet, other than possible clashes with copyright... but I can't imagine what kinds of conflicts could arise.

Shit, maybe even make certain games On Demand from NFL network.

Someone needs to hire me and let me market this.

Re: NFL games on DVD

There is something called the "NFL Greatest Games" series that has come out recently. I saw one for the 1985 Bears that said it included 12 of thier games on it. I couldn't find any on the Redskins but maybe it's not far off.

Yeah...this is the kind of stuff I was thinking as well....it seems to me that there all kinds of marketing possibilities here. I'm just surprised that the NFL isn't doing this.....at least the Super Bowls! You're telling me you don't think you could sell a million copies of that game yesterday to every Giants fan out there???

Re: NFL games on DVD

thats a good question,I bought a bunch off ebay then later got banned from ebay for selling them myself,sorry basterds!! kicked me off but still let other people do it
I have nearly all the superbowls,a lot of my favorite skins games,and i think I have most of the last 3 seasons
heres a list but its not updated

another good question is why doesnt the nfl have pay per view for single games instead of the sunday ticket for people who just want to watch a single game
